MANILA, Philippines – All remaining commercial flights still operating to and from Manila will be at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 1 starting Saturday, March 28.
NAIA Terminals 2 and 3 will be closed to commercial operations beginning 12:01 am on Saturday.
"As of date, landing and takeoff have dramatically dropped from the usual 768 flight movements per day to 50 movements," MIAA said in a statement.
It added that the move would support the government's "enhanced community quarantine" since "less personnel will have to report for work."
The cost of utilities will also go down, added MIAA, and groundhandling companies would have "a cheaper way of managing their logistics."
These are the airlines which will be operating at NAIA Terminal 1 starting Saturday:
The remaining flights are all international. A ban on domestic air travel has been in effect since the entire island region of Luzon was placed on a 30-day lockdown on March 17.
